Snowdonia Marathon 2014

SS - do you do corkage?

I'll have a quick look on here in the morning but will be leaving about 1200.  

Will it be post-race drinks and dirty-burgers again?

Hope to meet you all at some point in the weekend, but if not have a great race. First time SNODders - you are in for a treat.

For those of you looking for a breeze running down the long hill into Beddgelert, you'll get one.  Forecast is for a 21mph headwind (again).

Doesn't seem to be rain forecast which is a tad unusual.

Get well soon, brer.

Pain in the chest...

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 03:36

Sounds like asthma symptoms.  Does it feel like your chest is rasping or is your breathing wheezy?  Get the GP to test your peak flow.  You'll need to take a peak flow meter away with you and record morning and evening readings for a couple of weeks.  

My asthma always threatens to cut in about this time of year.  In the summer I'm free of symptoms but about now I start using my 'preventer' inhaler and with care I am not troubled too much by symptoms.  I also run with a buff over my mouth in cold weather which is manageable except you can't do intensive sessions!  It's also the reason why I don't ever race in winter.

Asthma 'attacks' can be triggered by sudden changes in air temperature or humidity so I am not sure that steaming is a very good idea?

Vomiting post marathon

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 03:19

It's quite normal to experience what you have, especially if new to marathons and still on a learning curve!

Probably a combination of too many gels/too much sugary stuff and over-exertion. 

Cut the intake a bit and see how you get on.  Might also be the energy drink you use? Some of these drinks do make you nauseous. Try out different ones on your long training  runs.

As you do more marathons you will also learn how hard you can push yourself without reducing performance or suffering excessively afterwards!

Earphones in races

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 17:34

I must admit I've never understood why people listen to music while they're running.  What's wrong with the stimuli from the environment you're running in? 

And if you are a woman running alone I would have thought you would need to be more alert to what's around you, not less.

I never attempt to engage in any banter or chat to people in races if they're wearing headphones. They clearly don't want this and perhaps are missing out on the more social element of running.

Quite a few people were DQ'd yesterday at Abingdon.

 

 

Abingdon Marathon 2014

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 17:02

On the back of little training and with some speed walking during miles 20-24 I got round in 4:11.  At about mile 24 I caught sight of my brother ahead which really spurred me on.  I got past with less than half a mile to go and managed to keep going.

The downside of water bottles is that most people seem to only take a sip and then throw the bottle down which becomes a nightmare job for people clearing up to empty them all. Where there are bottles I carry mine until it's empty and leave it at the next water station or at the foot of a race sign.

The secret to drinking out of a cup on the run is to squeeze the lip of the cup between your first finger and thumb, creating a spout which you can drink out of easily enough.
